Sounds Like BS: "Lady Gaga is Finished!"
There is no way of predicting what will happen next in this crazy sequence of events that is my life, and it has taken me many years to accept that I can't control everything. And when Dan Busheiken spoke the words "Without Limp Bizkit we would be nothing," and Mike Searle quickly agreed with him, I knew that the two members of Sounds Like BS were not messing around. They were serious.
But I laughed, because they're funny guys. After making a statement like that, I knew that this interview would at least be entertaining... and I was right.
I downloaded a sampler from their third release, BS3, about a week ago. As of April 10th, the record became available through their website via digital download. It's a pay-what-you-can deal and from what I've heard it's very entertaining and fairly catchy. They describe their sound as: "Party music - you put it on at a party. It's what's for."
I recommend the track Bitch, You Got Way Too Many Dresses. This is not indie rock; they plan on "heading to the top40". It's two guys, a sample, some guitar, entertaining lyrics, and a whole bunch of energy. Regarding the light and humorous content to their songs, I wanted to find their inspiration.
Dan says "a lot of it references what happens in our everyday life," to which Mike adds "Like that song 'Double Gulp. That's just about partying at our house. Just direct references."
In fact, from all the tracks I've heard the three prevalent themes are partying, girls, and love. Wait, there's just two themes - scratch love.
I don't want to be the one to make this public, but since Sounds Like BS went there, I'm going to go there. Apparently, while they are totally cool with Ashlee Simpson (like top-MySpace-friends-cool), they are not down with Lady Gaga.
"Lady Gaga is horrible. She's fucking terrible, and we hate her. She hates us too. Well, we haven't really talked about it, because we don't talk. Maybe she likes us, but we'd never know about it because we would never talk to her," explains Mike.
"Maybe she's jealous of us," quips Dan. Mike elaborates: "She's a hack; she's done nothing. She's blown it; she's done." And Dan continues: "She fucked it up the first time I saw 'Just Dance' on MuchMusic, and I was like 'Why? Why are you doing this? Why do you exist?'"
On the flip-side, Justin Timberlake is "the man" for them; Miley Cyrus is fine with Mike as well. This led to a discussion on pop music. While it would make most people's ears bleed, I got right into it. Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Len, Rhianna... we were all over it. And then it happened again.
"We love Limp Bizkit. Love them. We would be nothing without Limp Bizkit. We were just listening to them the other day," reveals Mike. "Every day," Dan concurs.
Sounds Like BS will be having their official CD release party on Thursday, April 16th, at Rancho Relaxo. According to them, they're going to "blow your minds, sock, tops, and cocks off!" Sounds like a crazy crazy party! But that's what BS sounds like.
